Following Tromsø, my next destination was Bergen, necessitating another flight.
The only direct flight between Tromsø and Bergen is operated by Widerøe, an airline I had never flown before.
Other options are Norwegian and SAS, but bot require at least one change if flight in Oslo.
With this in mind, I decided to give Widerøe a go.
The ground experience is very basic, with self service bag drop and no security fast track or lounge.
The on board experience is also basic, but no more so than economy class on just about any other carrier operating within Europe.
At an even six feet, I found the 29-inch seat pitch rather tight.
A buy-on-board menu is offered, although this short 10:35am flight was a little too soon after breakfast and not quite beer o’clock, so I settled for the complimentary coffee.
Overall, this experience was comparable to the better low cost airlines in Europe, such as easyJet. Given the convenience of the direct flight I was satisfied with the experience, although at around £225 or $270 it was rather pricey for what it was.
